Immigration rights in the late
1800s to the early 1900s vs...
Children's rights have gotten much better in some areas. Especially regarding the home where there used to be almost no laws. Now the government can take away your children if they feel the child's safety is being jeopardized. School attendance was compulsory in Canada as of 1871 but with much more attendance than in 1871.

Immigration Rights in 2016
In 1881, the Canadian government began building the CPR(Canadian Pacific Railway). Over the 4 years it took to build the railway over 15 000 people Chinese people immigrated to Canada. Once the railway was completed the Chinese's right were attacked with acts and downright negative behavior directed specifically at the Chinese immigrants. All this was done in an effort to assimilate them into Canadian culture.

Women's rights in 2016
Immigration rights were okay in the late 1800s /early 1900s except for the Chinese immigrants. Women's rights were so bad in the late 1800s/early 1900s that woman were not even legally "persons" until 1929. Only around the 1900s did the government feel the need to care more for children. We will find out in the rest of my presentation if things have changed in 2016.
Canada in 2016 is a very diverse
country that welcomes many immigrants. For example on the 13th of January the 10 000th Syrian refugee was welcomed in to the country. They emigrated to Canada to escape the civil war still raging on. Justin Trudeau made it a goal of his to bring 25 000 Syrian refugees by the end of 2015 but it could not be reached.
Children's rights were almost
non-existent before the 1900s.
Children worked in the fields beside
mother and father to help provide a bit more income for the family. Suddenly Ontario made school compulsory in 1871 which other provinces soon followed.Though school was compulsory the law was loosely enforced during the first few years Children had no rights in the home and were known as "parental property".
The early 1900s were a very
productive couple of years for
women's rights. Woman slowly
won the right to vote in all provinces and territories and on all levels(municipal, provincial, etc) . A big part of this progress was a group of women called The Famous Five or The Valiant Five.
Woman's right's and men's rights
are much more equal now. We have had female MP's, MPP's, and even a female prime minister Though women's right's are more equal now Canada is ranked 58th in the world in female representatives in government. Woman have occupied almost every job a man has but the better jobs like doctors and engineers are not usually held by women.
